I am a lurker here for just a long time. Thanks to your forum messages I have got a valuable (IMHO
Colt know-how. I always admired the Colt DA revolvers especially the latest production Python, Diamonback, King Cobra, Anaconda.

It happened that a week ago I bought a 4" stainless steel Python in TOP condition. The inspection of it lasted a half an hour and the astonished owner watched it with wide open eyes because only my notes what-to-check-and-how covered 2 paper sheets! Oh my, it's a beautiful gun with action like a "swiss watch". The carefull inspection result was clear "must buy".
So it's at home!

My wife is very pleased
that every evening I take my Python and admire the exquisite workmanship from all sides... again and again...

Just a day after I received a Jerry Kuhnhausen Colt book vol.I. Must say this book is a real treasure of valuable informations ! I can't imagine to do an disassembly of my Python without carefully reading this book. Moreover, you can do an almost professional assessment a of a condition of your gun or allocate worn or badly performing parts.
I remember what Mr. DFARISWHEEL has said about this book: "Every Python owner should have a copy.".

My wife is twicely as pleased as before, because after gun-admiring I take my Colt book and start reading up to midnight... day after day...

Yesterday I took my new friend to the range. A shot with 357 factory waddcutter did such a weak recoil and noise, that I immediately checked the barrel for jammed bullet. I found clear bore only and a hole in target.
Then I fed it with factory .357 Magnum 158grs FMJ ammo and then 158grs SWC lead bullets ammo reloaded as almost-strong .38 Special.
Six rounds at 10 yards in DA shooting. I got a cloverleaf grouping!
Another six rounds. Next cloverleaf!
I put the target at 15 yards. Third cloverleaf! I watched my target with open mouth.

What a wonderfull gun. I love it!
So thanks you guys for make me decide for COLT, thank you for make me decide for PYTHON.

Best wishes on your first.
It is nice to read of people with the same similar experiences with their first Colt.
Once again a Colt delivers its grand reputation!
Best of luck!

Keep them smoking,
